It’s the '70s. Sally likes Debbie Harry, Raymond likes making robots; they’re an unlikely pair.
Flash forward to 2030. After a long, childless and sometimes bumpy marriage, Sally has Alzheimer's. Before Raymond died he created a robot, uploaded with his memories, to keep her company. It’s the ultimate love letter from beyond the grave: an endlessly patient memoryjogger and singing partner, it gives order to her confusion, and becomes a new partner in the oddest of odd-couple romances. But as Sally’s mind fades, will the robot be more of a comfort or a threat?
Spillikin will make you laugh, cry, and ponder big questions of love, death, and technology.
There will be a Q&A session with the cast and a chance to meet the robot following every performance.
Age recommendation 14+ due to strong language and sexual references.
